Love the sauce

Small place with really great BBQ. It doesn't look like much inside or out but their BBQ is outstanding. I really like the sauce, has a bit of a kick which is nice. I stop by when visiting Tuscaloosa and pick up BBQ pork to take home. I haven't tried their ribs but plan on giving them a try... read more

Visited here on Saturday evening during UA move in weekend. Wife and daughters had Pork Sandwich, I had Rib Sandwich. Sides, we had between us, were green beans, fried green tomatoes, slaw, potato salad and baked beans. All of them were very flavorful. Ribs were tender, but not fall of bone, but were very good. The girls all loved the... More

Finished a long day of meetings and had a few hours of driving ahead of me. Stopped here based on numerous recommendations. BBQ was tender and the vinegar based sauce put just the right kick. Fried okra was right out of the fryer and crunchy. Staff very friendly. Place is somewhat small so I imagine during lunch it gets crowded.... More

We have been twice and it is the best I have ever had. We live in Aiken, South Carolina and I hope when I go to a game this season I can bring some back home.

Ok this place isn't much to look at. But food is excellent, fast and reasonable. I was disappointed they didn't serve beer but sweet tea hit the spot on 100 degree day. We had combo platters with ribs and pork and chicken and ordered piece of fish to try. We had leftovers for lunch. The sauce was vinegar, tomato spicy... More

Decided to try Archibald & Woodrow's Barbeque while visiting Tuscaloosa with family. Our 6 adults and 2 teenagers shared 2 racks of ribs and 15 hot wings with sides of baked beans, cole slaw, fried okra (no fried green tomatoes available). Archibalds is very similar to the original Dreamland in many ways. The establishment is, of course, very modest. Service... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. The restaurant is small and not much to look at on the inside, but the food is great. We really enjoyed the tender pork and fried green tomatoes. The waitress was extremely nice too. I will definitely come back again when in Alabama.

This place is nothing fancy to look at but the food was awesome. The fried okra and the fried green tomatoes were outstanding! Also very reasonably prices. Defiantly worth the trip!

This is a great little place, go in and sit where you can. The staff will find you soon enough with a menu. The sweet tea is great and a must have if you visit. The BBQ is good and there is a great selection on the menu. Take-out is possible too if you plan on having a picnic down... More
